The 20-Inch Aqua Capiz Shell with Wooden Beads Wind Chime is a truly unique, organic-inspired piece that will take your breath away. Crafted from capiz shells and wooden beads, this chime has a gentle, mellow sound that may just remind you of the ocean. The capiz shell, which is the outer shell of the marine mollusk, is found in the coastal waters off the Phillippines and Indonesia. To make this elegant chime, Bali craftsmen take the capiz shell and sand and shape it, then dye it a brilliant aqua. Wooden beads strung from durable nylon cord complete this piece, which measures 20 inches long.

Caring for your Bamboo Windchime
All Asli Arts bamboo windchimes are made using natural and sustainable products such as bamboo and coconut shell. Each is hand-carved and hand-tuned by artisans in Bali or Vietnam. With proper care, your Asli Arts bamboo chime will typically last from 3-4 years when hung outside.
To extend the life of your chime:
We have taken a number of precautions to ensure our Asli Arts bamboo chimes are the highest quality bamboo chime in the marketplace. Our manufacturers produce only for us, allowing us to ensure a high standard of quality control. In addition, our manufacturers harvest their bamboo only during the best time of year and properly dry the bamboo before making the chimes, both of which reduce the risk of cracks in the bamboo. Finally, all Asli Arts chimes are inspected before they leave our U.S. warehouse.
Bamboo is sensitive to humidity and sudden temperature changes. Despite all our precautions, infrequently, cracks in bamboo occur as the bamboo expands and contracts in reaction to climate changes. Hairline cracks are not of concern; they are normal to bamboo and will not affect the sound of your chimes. What's more, hairline cracks generally do not develop into larger cracks.
